Nominate to commemorate a remarkable Welsh woman
Chwarae Teg is calling on the public to put forward nominations for the next Purple Plaque which will recognise the life of a remarkable Welsh woman when unveiled on 11 October 2019 – International Day of the Girl.
Nominations close on Friday 10 May and the gender equality charity hopes that people all over Wales will see this as an opportunity to remember and honour a deserving woman.
The Purple Plaque campaign aims to improve the recognition of remarkable women in Wales, and award them with the memorial to commemorate their achievements and cement their legacy in Welsh history.
In partnership with Chwarae Teg, Purple Plaques will showcase and pay tribute to women across Wales who have had a long lasting impact on their communities and have previously gone uncelebrated or been missed out from the history books altogether.
All eligible nominees must be deceased, Welsh or lived in Wales, have achievements previously uncelebrated, made an impact in Wales and had community involvement.
To date Purple Plaques have been dedicated to Former Labour AM and equalities campaigner Val Feld and Ursula Masson a Merthyr born feminist historian.
